The tragic end of the lost whale... he died of tumors and an incurable disease

A sick whale that got lost in the Seine River in France was found dead on Monday, a day after marine experts decided to euthanize the animal after failed attempts to save it.

The Seine-Martem province in Rouen province said that the whale's carcass floated in the river this morning, and the whale weighing several tons will be dragged ashore. After that, an autopsy is expected, perhaps to find out the nature of his illness.

Aerial photographs of the whale showed tumors and a rash on its body, most likely due to an incurable fungal disease at an advanced stage, which caused great suffering to it in its last days.

Usually whales make their home more off the coasts of Scotland, Iceland, Norway and in the South Atlantic Ocean in the Bay of Biscay, and it was speculated that this whale got lost at first in the English Channel due to illness, and was able to feed more easily in calm waters, But he ended up stranded in the French River.
